Harrison married screenwriter Melissa Mathison in 1983 and though they divorced in 2004, they shared two children as well. 36-year.old Malcolm has followed in his father's footsteps, making small acting appearances and playing in rock band The Dough Rollers. Meanwhile his 33-year-old daughter Georgia has also followed her father into acting, having made a few appearances in projects including American Milkshake, I'm Being Me, and The Visitor
